Let me think about it

It’s Saturday night it’s been so bloody hot today here in England.

so I thought let’s do a nice easy Q and A from the comfort of my nice cool bedroom.

OK its called 5 favourites and I’ve chosen 5 questions from the list…

Oh this is my thinking face too ๐Ÿ™ˆ

  • 5 favourite celebrities : Micky Flanagan, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Phillip Schofield and Cameron Diaz (3 eye candy and 2 fab women)
  • 5 favourite words/sayings you use too much: peachy, beaut, I love it, you’re special, ya (like the German for yeah) that ones just become a habit ๐Ÿ™ˆ
  • 5 favourite movies of all time : Bridget Jones Diary – the first one, Now and then, 10 things I hate about you, The kissing booth and of course Dirty Dancing…. There’s so many than 5 I’ll do a blog post on it at a later date.
  • 5 favourite pictures on my phone that are not people :

and finally

5 favourite quotes:

  1. live well, laugh often, love much.
  2. If it doesn’t make me feel fabulous I don’t want it.
  3. The greater the storm the brighter the rainbow.
  4. Love yourself like your not waiting for someone else to do it
  5. It’s not about the size you wear but how you wear your size.

Hope you enjoyed the read ๐ŸŒธ

June Favourites

It’s that time again where I wrack my brains to see what I can include in my monthly favourites.

So here we go.

I’ll start with what happened right at the start of the month… I had my hair cut off and I bloody love it

SO…? STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM BODY MIST

I saw this in Boots while browsing at the make up it was situated at the end of the aisle. Smells like a dream and good enough to eat. Nice to put on when you don’t want to put your expensive perfume on.

MILEY CYRUS

Always loved Miley Cyrus even in way back in her Hannah Montana days.

She is coming is her new album. At the there is only 6 on there o Spotify let’s hope she adds some more.

MY LEOPARD PRINT SANDALS

These were accidentally stumbled upon whilst browsing some summer clothes on ASOS. Aren’t they just lovely, they are a little heavy but they are so comfy. Simple but stylish.

REVLON CUSHION LIP TINT

My lips adore this lip tint from Revlon. It goes on more like a matte lipstick and stays on at least 8 hours which I think is fab for a lip tint. Love it so much I’ve purchased another one just incase they sell out ๐Ÿ™ˆ

HUMMOUS

For a while after surgery I lost my appetite a bit. The one thing that got me eating again was hummous. I usually dip cucumber and carrots in. If there’s none of them it’s a packet of crisps. Luckily they also do a 30% less fat so I don’t feel too guilty whilst eating it.

INSHOT

If you are looking for an app that you can edit, make collages on, edit videos and add a bit of music then inshot is it. Of course with most apps there are in app purchases but to be honest you can do so much on here without having to buy anything. Go download it and have a play around.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

Just love meaningful quotes and this one is perfect.

Here’s to July

Self care is the best care

Self care is not just all about putting on a face mask and pampering yourself, but my goodness doesnโ€™t that sound like a great idea.

Self care is about taking care of you as a whole and making sure you are being kind to every part of you inside and out.

Iโ€™ve come up with a list of things to do on days when you need that extra more care and attention…mind, body and soul.

So here goes

  • Unplug your phone/ put it on do not disturb for an hour or two just let your mind just be
  • put on some relaxing music whether itโ€™s acoustic or panpipes or just instrumental just enjoy the sounds.
  • Do a brain dump – grab a notebook and just unload whatโ€™s in your head onto one page itโ€™ll help clear your head.
  • write poetry/ song. You will find it so therapeutic.
  • light some scented candles or diffuse essential oils. Get your area smelling serene.
  • Find an app to destress you I think insight app is great. A must try.
  • self massage, the bits you can get to just add moisture to it with either baby oil or a body lotion. Make your body feel loved.
  • Practise positive affirmations whether you say them out loud on in your head it will keep you in a positive mindset.
  • Do some yoga or some form of stretching, youโ€™ll find that this will get rid of any tension built up inside.
  • Take a nap if needs be, itโ€™s will renew your energy and get you in the mood to take on anything the day has in store for you
  • Make yourself a self care box of all things you love and that make you smile. If it fits put it in there.
  • Just enjoy your own company doing what ever your heart desires whether itโ€™s watching a movie, eating your favourite food or singing along to your favourite songs.

Weโ€™re half way there

So it’s nearly the end of June, the 6th month of the year, half way through the year of 2019 and I think it’s great to look back and write down what things have occurred and how it’s changed you/ your life

So grab a pen and paper and write down the questions I’m going to answer, you’ll be pleasantly surprised

๐ŸŒž NAME THREE CHANGES YOU’VE ACTIVELY MADE ?

– I have cared less about people who don’t give two hoots about me

– I have gone through my big surgery to try better my health

– I have started looking into spiritual things and being more chilled than stressed

๐ŸŒž WHATS THE BEST ADVICE YOU’VE HEARD?

Don’t give up on what you love, on yourself and on those you love ( would I?… NEVER )

I guess on those days when you think why do I bother doing this, nobody cares, yes they do and the one person that it should really matter who cares is you,so stop doubting yourself .

๐ŸŒž ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE THIS YEAR SO FAR?

I’d have to say TRYING. Our family as a whole have been through the mill over the past 6 months so at this point in time I think that’s my word.

๐ŸŒž BEST MOVIE YOU’VE WATCHED THIS YEAR?

Without a doubt it has to be Bohemian Rhapsody, I adore Freddie Mercury and all he was. His music, his carefree attitude and all round from the film you can see he’d been through things we never knew. A true legend that will live on in many peoples hearts

๐ŸŒž FAVOURITE SONG?

SingridDon’t feel like crying

This year this song has appeared on the radio when I felt a bit tearful and it was almost like a sign to say cheer up, you don’t really feel like crying.

๐ŸŒž ONE GOAL YOU ARE STILL STRIVING FOR?

I want to make a difference to people who like myself suffer from anxiety so whether it’s a book or some project or I may even get creative and make some relievers ( they definitely help me ) so if I could make some for others that’ll be great.

I find a bit of reflection is therapeutic if you just let yourself go and just write โœ๐Ÿป

A Vision, A Dream, A Reality

You’ve all heard of vision boards… The board that you can make with all your dreams you want to come true.

Well I’ve been doing it a bit differently with this little beaut…


When I am chilling out on my bed and pinning on Pinterest like mad I decided why don’t I have a secret board of my visions in life so a few weeks ago I started it.

Today I decided to focus on my dream house if I was ever lucky enough to own / rent such a place and this is the 12 I chose out of the 50 odd that are on my board ๐Ÿ™ˆ


I absolutely adore the colour pink so I would of course theme the house around my personality and that colour.

I couldn’t leave out the garden so I included that too.


Somewhere girly but also relaxing at the same time.
Whoever my other half was would have to accept my inner Elle Woods from Legally Blonde.

Apparently if you put your visions out there to the universe you shall have so there you go universe I would like this ๐ŸŒธ

Hope you’ve enjoyed reading.
Let me know if you have made vision boards/pages.
